"Heâ€™s been a fantastic signing for United and thoroughly deserves that no.7 shirt," former skipper Neville told ManUtd.com.
"Having played with him for a year or two, I can tell you heâ€™s a brilliant footballer, especially to play behind as a right-back. He does the right things at the right time, he works back to help out when you donâ€™t have the ball, he delivers good crosses and he can beat a man.
"Heâ€™s a real handful to play against and I was really pleased to see him score a few more goals last season. Thatâ€™s probably the only area of the game in which youâ€™d like to see an improvement.
"He has a wonderful shot and he stays calm under pressure. Iâ€™d love to see him chip in with 10 or 15 goals this season - heâ€™s more than capable of doing that."
